Aedh wishes for the Cloths of Heaven

The last three lines of this poem were used in one of my favorite movies, EQUILIBRIUM.

"Aedh wishes for the Cloths of Heaven"
by William Butler Yeats

Had I the heavens' embroidered cloths,
Enwrought with golden and silver light,
The blue and the dim and the dark cloths
Of night and light and the half light,
I would spread the cloths under your feet:
But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
I have spread my dreams under your feet;
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.
